The Saruzu Quartet are a fiery flamenco-tango-jazz ensemble. Their interpretation of the rich harmonies of Argentine tango, the wild improvisations of gypsy jazz and the fire and grace of flamenco is exhilarating. Evocative of a 1920s Paris cafe scene filtered through an edgy and contemporary sensibility, the Saruzu Quartet is a celebration of the musical passions of its members – renowned violinist Shenton Gregory, sensual flamenco dancer and fiery percussionist Simone Pope, ferociously cool jazz bass player Andrew Shaw and laidback guitar virtuoso Andrew Veivers.

The Saruzu Quartet’s second self-produced recording – Segundo – slinks onto your stereo, impeccably clad and very well heeled, demanding your head twist twice to take in its smooth delivery.

Special guest vocalist Kacey Patrick (Stringmansassy) lends her angelic tones to a mesmerising remake of the Duke Ellington tune Caravan and the hypnotic Historia de un Amor. Inspired and exciting.
